The loginwall is coming. It is only a matter of time, until Invidious, Newpipe etc. will die. Now is the last chance to download all your favourite videos/music.

I've never experienced this before. I agree though, this shit is retired as fuck. Why do I need to give my cell number for a fucking email? Rediculous.

Because email accounts are easy as hell to get. Phone numbers a little more tricky but google will give you one free permanent phone number for every account you have in any area code.

 

anyone who didn't think this was going to happen sooner or later and continued to be invested in youtube as a platform is kind of an idiot. I appreciate that these alternative frontends/clients exist but I would never waste my time developing something that depends on Google not caring enough to kill the project through technical or legal measures.

 

Here's another friendly reminder that Youtube as a business model does not, never did, and never will make sense. Nobody is going to compete with it. Odysee and all the others exist to get big enough to get bought. If anybody actually used them, either the servers would fall over or they would scale up and burn through their money. You can have alternatives but they can't work like Youtube and you need to invest in them.

It started last week and it's currently only affecting abusive (read: VPN and hosting) IP addresses. I will bet that nearly 100% of people seeing this message have no intention of ever seeing ads or giving Youtube money or data. Any exceptions are very likely to just log in, right? Frankly I'm surprised that it took this long.

 

Ok, I have tried now about 20 different Invidious instances and they are all broken. It seems, this is the end for Invidious.

Hilarious, Google made the interwebs objectively worse with every step on the way, true free market capitalism where you can do little more than stick in your corner and watch it all crumble away

Yeah, any platform trying to get into large scale video hosting is laughable, youtube is probably one of the largest moneysinks for google if I had to guess. One of the more interesting ideas for video hosting is something like peertube which has uses bittorrent for video sharing, but the software is not ready at all nor is the content. I might be wrong about everything

 

newpipe still works for me

 

>>25554
this shit legitimately gives me cold sweats at night. i have thousands of videos saved and not enough time to sort through them all nor hard drives to store them all.

 

>>25591
Why can't you just make an account?

 

>>25566
Yeah, closest you're gonna get is federated options like peertube. The vibe will still be different tho.

 

>>25592
You can't log yt-dlp in.

 

>>25594
oh so the playlists are on the site? no option to export?

 

>>25581
The Peertube viewing experience is a lot better than it used to be because of fast centralized hosts and limited (almost non-existant) usage. None of those hosts are built to scale. But there's supposed to be P2P load balancing if and when there's load, right? How well does that scale? I think it would be a mixed bag. Popular videos could be fine. Stale videos would be like stale torrents and central hosts under load probably can't pick up the slack. There's also the problem of phone users, asymmetric upload speeds, and data caps which are all bigger problems for general video viewership than they are for traditional P2P traffic. The userbase is vastly different.

>>25582
All clients still work. This isn't a client issue. This is a blacklisted network issue.

>>25594
You can dump your session cookies and use those with yt-dlp. I think there's also an OAUTH fork.

 


 

>>25600
Damn that's pretty smart, I wonder how adblock can get around this if YT just refuses to serve the video before the ad ends
